If you have to tweak the vertical-hold knob when you switch between the
Raspberry Pi and the Apple II's composite output, that would suggest that
they're outputting different video standards. A PAL monitor can often
display an NTSC signal (or vice versa) if you tweak the vertical hold; in
both cases, you aren't going to get color.
Someone suggested NTSC 4.43 (50 Hz field rate, 4.43 MHz colorburst) as a
possibility. The Raspberry Pi won't produce that type of signal, so if
that's what your monitor is expecting, you're stuck. :-?
